Misc. Comments

"... these part-songs are distinguished in an exceptional
degree by refinement and poetic charm. Where all is so good
it may be unwise to establish distinctions; but, if called upon
to select, our choice would fall upon 'Resting,' which is a
little gem. Its companions, however, are very well able
to hold their own."
- The Musical Times, Dec. 1, 1891, p. 744
(reviewing nos. 2-4).
